India maoist attack on train kills three policemen

World News : Maoist rebels opened fire on a passenger train in the eastern Indian state of Bihar Saturday, killing three railway security men, police said.

The guerrillas fired at the policemen as the train passed through a tunnel on its way to state capital Patna from the town of Sahebganj in Munger district, senior police officer S.K. Bhardwaj told AFP.

“They fired at the railway policemen in the train. Three of our men have died and another has been seriously injured,” Bhardwaj said.

The guerillas fled with at least five rifles that belonged to the policemen after forcing the train to stop, he added.

On Wednesday, Maoist insurgents ambushed a security patrol and killed four troopers in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh.

The Maoists have grown from a rag-tag band of ideologues into a potent insurgent force, creating a so-called “Red Corridor” that stretches throughout central and eastern India.

They demand land and jobs for the poor, and want to establish a communist society by toppling what they call India´s “semi-colonial, semi-feudal” form of rule.

The insurgency is believed to have cost tens of thousands of lives.

Critics believe military action is not enough to stem it, saying the real solution is better governance and development. (AFP)
